Right now catalogue-date properties are broken^Wirregular for both
parrun and shipunov in texlive.tlpdb. Don't know how significant it is
Completely insignificant (to us).
Maybe just texlive scripts should be fixed (I'm Cc'ing
Everything has been fixed in various sources for several days, as Robin
replied already. The texlive.tlpdb entries weren't updated because we
intentionally don't update packages just because their Catalogue entry

packages / consume more bandwidth just to fix a typo in the description
(much less in the catalogue-date attribute).
However, since apparently this will be a problem for you forever, I've
just forced an update of those two packages in tonight's build. Hope
that will settle it.

generating texlive database
They never broke our scripts, anyway.
